The List of Lithuanian Righteous

As of November, 2022 Yad Vashem recognized 924 Lithuanians as Righteous Among the Nations. 

About the Righteous Among the Nations 

The Righteous Among the Nations are recognized and honored by Yad Vashem - the Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Authority in Jerusalem. The name of Righteous Among the Nations is granted to a man who, being a non-Jew, saved Jews during the Holocaust while risking his own life. 

About the project

Our main goal is to prevent the memory of the Righteous Among the Nations from being forgotten. In order to achieve this goal, we are marking the graves of Lithuanian Righteous with special made tokens.
